We are delighted to announce an evening with Annie Atkins to celebrate the recent publication of her book Fake Love Letters, Forged Telegrams, and Prison Escape Maps: Designing Graphic Props for Filmmaking, published by Phaidon.

You'll be familiar with Annie's work - her props have helped build the worlds we're thrown into at the cinema (The Grand Budapest Hotel, to mention our favourite!). She'll be talking us through some examples of her work and sharing how she approaches the design process.

The paper legends G . F Smith will also be popping up at the event and giving away copies of their swanky new Collection Book.

To celebrate the launch of the book, we're offering it at a special discount of half price, when bought with a ticket.

Annie will be on hand afterwards to sign a copy or two, so snap up a ticket and book before they fly off the internet!

The event will be a slightly different format from previous Glugs, dedicating the night to Annie's work and new book.

7pm - Annie Atkins Talk

7.45pm - Q&A Session
